ASRock 970 Extreme3 AM3+ 970 chipset motherboard - $81 + $7 shipping [Superbiiz] after promo code DRAGON

Coolermaster Elite 311 + AMD Phenom II x4 830 [925] 2.8Ghz quad core OEM - $114 + $6 shipping [Newegg]

Coolermaster Hyper 212+ - $20 shipped [Newegg]

OCZ ModXStream 500W PSU - $50 + $6 shipping counting the $15 gift card discount, $20 rebate [Newegg]

WD Caviar Blue 500GB 7200RPM 16MB cache HDD - $80 shipped [Newegg]

Samsung OEM DVD burner - $16 shipped [Newegg]

 

Base price: $380 shipped, $360 after rebates

 

Whole thing is ready for overclocking and for taking on any decent single GPU setup.

Between $70-100 you have some good video card choices such as the HD 6750 right away; you could add a second one for Crossfire and get a new monitor when your second amount of cash arrives.  I might recommend something else in the meantime though.  Spend only a limited amount of cash (i.e. $30) on an open box GPU or other deal that will hold you over on your small screen for the next few months.  When your new $180 cash arrives in February along probably with your rebate, you'll have a lot more cash (i.e. $240) to spend on a new graphics card and monitor (plus the resale value of your temporary card) thumb.gif
